I was not aware that I "threw out a jab at a favorite whipping boy of the left". Wow, you read a lot into my post that I didn't say. And I am the one being butthurt? Please. I am sorry your clear penchant for assumptions is so strong. It must be exhausting to be so sensitive. The OP used a spaceship analogy about sealing off bad sections and the discussion is about events in Texas, so I was trying to see if that is really what they were calling for because I think that is ridiculous. No political implications involved nor insults meant toward Texas, but feel free to keep reaching and accusing others of being the butthurt ones.

Everyone else did such a great job destroying your points I felt no need to add to the choir. You are either a shill, a troll, or perhaps you really are just ignorant enough to side with the telcos on Net Neutrality. I don't really care which it is and if I had mod points, you'd get a -1.

+ - Why Microsoft skipped Windows 9

Submitted by Bizzeh
Bizzeh (851225) writes "Microsoft may not be everybody's favorite company, but they are the kings of backwards compatibility. When testing what was Windows 9 (and is now Windows 10). It seems like they came across some compatibility issues from the Windows 9x days. Mentioned by Mikko Hypponen on twitter (, quite a lot of products test the version string with "indexOf("windows 9")". Using searchcode, we can see what he means."

When you make statements about the ENTIRE constitution, how "Congress must obey it", and how "it's not just a piece of parchment" as Paul says, yeah. If you claim the whole thing must be obeyed but don't give the same respect to the other parts, you are being disingenuous.

Detroit has a corruption problem, regardless of political party. The only reason the politicians in Detroit are Democrat is that the African-American population votes overwhelmingly Democrat. If they voted Republican, we'd have the same assholes running for office but they would be R instead of D. Cronyism and corruption transcend party and the jerks in Detroit are opportunists of the highest order.
